Our Bolt (For Usain St. Leo)

He made easy strides,
effortless glides
into the history books.

9.81 seconds
of pure thrill
down the track
shouts of "Usain, Usain"
at his back.

At the finish line
he looked left
he looked right
dazzling smile
leaving the competition
stunned and speechless!

Our Bolt
ever playful
ever gracious
One beautiful final(?) Olympic gift
to this little island rock,
to the world.

Our Bolt
Large
Phenomenal
Jamaican
Legend.
